    10 / 10

    It's incredibly sleek, and just when the backward effects risk becoming a bit too much of a cool gimmick, Nolan once again plants the mysteries of existence within us. - Maria Brander

    Even though I may be bothered by how Christopher Nolan almost always complicates his films by messing with the timelines, I think that almost everything he has done is good. In "Tenet", he continues to play with our sense of time, but this time he allows past, present, and future to coexist in the same frame. - Eric Diedrichs

    Christopher Nolan's long-awaited spy drama "Tenet" holds up to the hype, and the film has several trump cards that enhance the experience. - Helena Lindblad

    It's really mostly explosive and a bit macho entertainment for the time being - a well-choreographed, adrenaline-filled and over-the-top action flick where secret agents mess with astrophysicists and the effects are on high gear. - Oskar Möller

    "Tenet" is still a worthwhile cinematic experience, oscillating between banal clichés and eyebrow-raising novelties. Engaging, but unnecessarily convoluted. - Jens Peterson

    "Tenet" makes you sweat and your pulse rise - but Christopher Nolan's anticipated epic film does not engage emotionally. - Sebastian Lindvall

    Well, you would probably need to watch Tenet once more, in slow motion, to investigate if everything fits together, which it certainly does. But on the other hand, that would be a punishment. - Fredrik Sahlin

    This is non-stop action from start to finish, and it is doubtful whether the film will fill the cinemas for a long time. - Mats Johnson

    "Tenet" is not at all Christopher Nolan's great masterpiece. Just like everything he's done, it's very beautiful and has an incredibly strong premise, but beyond that, it's not much more than an elegant action movie with an extremely complex view of time. - Jesper Lundstedt
